For the first time removing the carpet you or anyone else for that matter will need to CUT the tiny piece of carpet near the seat mounts.The Jeep will not bleed or need immediate resceatation so don't panic. It's a simple process. There will be a couple of plastic thumb screws that hold it down as well.

There is probably a thread on how to remove them or even a you tube video. It is very easy and Jeep designed them to be removable to access the drain plugs. You will jick yourself in the *** later when you see how ridiculously easy it was.

As I described earlier in the post on how to remove the carpet. It was easy and I was not going to let my 2 month old 2014 jeep smell or mold up for carpet that I will probably remove completely later on down the road anyway.

I pulled the carpet upon delivery of our 2012 and they installed it in the 2011 we traded in. That was to replace the carpet that I removed soon after I cleaned it ONCE! Absolutely useless feature in an off road vehicle they should have at least offered rubber linners like a work truck.

I totally agree, they could put rubber liner in, but I'm shure it's been researched by Chrysler and a carpeted jeep sales better. At least give us an option, or they make more money on those of us who take it out and replace with rhino liner or rubber mats.

I really liked the vinyl floor in my sport trac. I would much rather have that in a jeep vs carpet.

I think the point that the jeep is only five months old is being missed, I'm not cutting anything, going to let dealer fix it by replacing carpet. Then, when I get fresh new carpet, I'll consider raptor lining floor, but, it is hotter than hot here so less insulation is not good, and we usually never see rain, just dust which is no big thing on carpet. Heck, I'm putting carpet back into a 73 Bronco to help with heat and noise.

Good luck with the new carpet, the dealer told me all they will do is pull it out and dry it, then put it back in. I was not letting my 2 month old 2014 jeep sit with water soaked carpet till they can get to it. Just my view on it and I did something about it. I reset the top and tested it with copious amounts of water to test the top and no leaks. Guess it was operator error on my part. True test will be the next time it rains.
